4:02 pm
see resort area in france. this is an avalanche overtaking a ski lift. >> how did this happen at a ski resort? >> reports are saying they think it was caused by a higher than normal temperature. there skiers right there and people skiing right in front of the avalanche. more video caught by a cell phone. as this avalanche came through, people were on the chair lift. some of the people ended up riding all the way to higher ground and were taken to safety, but some were trapped. this video shows the rescuers coming to help people who are trapped on the chair lift and if you watch in the background, here's a chopper coming in to aid in the rescue of people. >> you were seeing the chairs getting mangled and barbed around. that's the last place i would want to be. >> check out this video that shows the chair lift still in motion as the person filming it is going up the chair lift.
4:03 pm

4:04 pm
system. there is someone watching this feed and they are able to control these cameras. eventually you will see this person comes into the frame and collapses. that's 19-year-old darrell adams who was just shot. she was just wounded from a gunshot. watch this. as he is laying on the ground, two other gentlemen walk up and watch what happens. >> did they shot him? >> they're shot him again. he was killed in the incident, but watch. seconds after the two suspects shoot this guy a second time, the cops paying attention to this viper system were able to radio to an unmarked cop nearby. you can see within seconds that cop pulls up to the scene and apprehends the two guys. that's a pretty effective surveillance system. it turned out to be a 16-year-old and 19-year-old.
4:05 pm
both were charged with second-degree murder and criminal possession. >> teenagers killing each other. >> it's startlingow casual and guys are walking allegedly shooting him again and throwing away like it's nothing. >> a man checks the videos and look at what he sees. he sees a guy lingering around the cars parked outside of his house. he looks like he is dressed in a cover all and carrying a can. that's the video that continues. he lights the match on the windshield of the car and walks off. >> what? >> he fried to set the car on fire. the car does catch fire, but luckily the homeowner puts out the names with assistance of the firefighters. it wasn't a total loss, but the guy had no idea why this happened and these two car fist they would have exploded, they were feet from where the family
4:06 pm
was sleeping. oklahoma city investigators are checking into this and have no idea why this guy did this. you see the suspected arsonist give a thumbs up to the camera. he sees the camera. >> he knew he was being recorded? had this happened other places or was this the only house that was targeted? >> we spoke to the chief of police and this was a random act of vandalism. >> you can get a clear shot of this guy's face. i hope they are using this video to find this person. >> it's weird if it's random, but more scary if this guy is doing it on purpose. he might try it again. >> when you see this video you will be amazed that people were not seriously injured. this is on an icy road in columbus ohio. not one, not two, but multiple cars were sliding all over the roadway and caught on camera.
4:07 pm
